FROM VENUS TO ANTARCTICA The Life of Dumont d'Urville
John Dunmore

Explorer, navigator, botanist, hydrographer, philologist and writer; Dumont d'Urville was gifted and his achievements were numerous. Yet like the statue of the Venus de Milo, which he helped to take to France, he was flawed. This first full biography in English reveals every facet of this complex man.
